AAA: Ariz. gas prices dip 9 cents since last week

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Gasoline prices continue to drop, with AAA reporting that Arizona motorists currently are paying an average of $3.91 for a gallon of regular unleaded.

It says that's a drop of nearly 9 cents from last week.

The national average also is $3.91.

AAA says barring unforeseen circumstances, it's likely that Arizona prices will drop another 15 to 20 cents over the next month leading up to the Labor Day holiday, when it's likely we'll see an increase again.

Tucson drivers, says AAA, continue to have the lowest gas prices at $3.74 a gallon, while Flagstaff drivers continue to pay the most at $4.14.
